  • Dijon has over 200 historical monuments. In the Rue des Forges, the facades of a couple of nice townhouses (hôtel particulier) can be found. Very touristic street, all about shopping.  more »
  • It's the historic heart to the town and a wonderful spot for photos. Sit near the carousel and have a crepe. They're very good. It's picturesque, mostly clean and feels safe. Lots of interesting shops...  more »
  • This was very interesting, but very touristy. I preferred walking around the more quiet streets. It was nice to see the carousel still working.  more »
